It’s early yet, but Alvaro Quiros has just finished off the round of the day, a 67 that brought him from even par to 5 under for the tournament. The big-hitting Spaniard made his sixth and final birdie at the 18th hole -- much to the delight of the fans in the massive grandstands that are starting to fill up in earnest now.
U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell is also making up some ground. The affable Northern Irishman started the day at 1 under after a third-round 74 but has made six birdies and two bogeys in his first 14 holes to climb into the top 10 – for now, at least. – Helen Ross
